These guys re not venomous but have a particularly ornery disposition!! I think they are cool as hell.

We got one to pose for us last year in Costa Rica. The first shot has sat unprocessed for over a year. The second one was processed back then. Canon 6D plus 100mm f2.8 macro

PS you can see me on the left and my friend on the right reflected in the snake's eye in the first shot!

Ed, It surely has a nice big smile! ha

Does this species not have a tongue, and was it hissing in the second shot?

Beautiful shots, I was hoping to get down there before long.
